I took Kylie for a suprise weekend to Harrison Hotsprings.
I started her off with a bike ride. The plan was to bike up Bear Mountain,
but that was closed so we found a lake in Sasquatch park instead.
I found a rather slick bridge that involved me wiping out and hobbling round
for a couple of minutes as I was recovering from my saddle connecting with
my butt on the way down!
Kylie drove Fanny to the hotel....
We went out for dinner and then had a 2hr treatment and massage at the spa.
Time to convince Kylie to go out for a walk (at 10:30pm). We walked to the
end of a wooden jetty on Harrison Lake, I warned Kylie that I was about to
ask her a question - which she wasn't expecting!.....dropped to one knee and
asked her to marry me! She said yes and then a nicely timed random firework
went off in the distance! We walked back to shore, so I could give her the
Kylie in my jacket still looking a little stunned!
Sunday we drove to White Rock to suprise Kylie's parents with the news!
Some quotes from family and friends:
My Dad: "You've had a good run son, I was 29 when I got
Kylie's Parents: "Great, she's finally off our hands!"
Kylie's Grandma: "There's a sucker born every minute!"
My sister Jackie: "Why wait 'til next year to get married,
how about next month? Natasha, Michelle and Hudson need cousins!"
My sister Di: "Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!! Say hi to
my future sister-in-law for me!"
My good friend Tom:"If she loves Fanny as much as you
then she's a keeper! "
tripped and fell head over heels,
and when Kylie helped him up,
he put a ring on her finger!
Another one bites the dust!
